ENDRAUMVer información de la banda
"In flimmernder nacht…"

(1993) - Twilight Records
CD - digi-pack

Re-release of the second album by one of the very first German Dark bands. Just like the highly revered Lacrimosa, they blend melancholy, romanticism and darkness amidst beautiful piano playing, combined with female vocals. The end-product of this record is that of a sophisticated and different sound altogether.

"Anthology"

(1967/1971) - NMV Records
CD - special pack

This anthology comprises every single track to ever be recorded by this fantastic and amazing Argentine Beat and Garage outfit from the sixties. The group released several singles, and then their debut LP was censored by the military dictatorship of the times because they dared to sing in English!!!!! A justified effort was made to rescue and restore this transcendental and explosive bunch from oblivion. An extremely valuable period edition. Released in a luxury digi-pack, 7" vinyl format.

After enduring several line-up changes and searching for a new style, Tanger finally reaches its third studio album. The end-product is an even more raw sound and featuring an urban-dominated feel (which identifies the outfit with the music of the city of Buenos Aires), blended together with a Jazzy flavour. However, the group doesn't ever stray at all from the Progressive Rock path that they are mostly associated with.

"Sin tiempo ni espacio"

(1974) - VIAJERO INMÓVIL Records
CDr-VIR

At the dawning of the seventies was when this band started performing live in concert. The outfit featured some very rare particularities: twin lead guitars, permanent presence of a violin throughout all of their songs, almost handled as a lead instrument; and excellent vocal arrangements. They mixed Psychedelia, Prog Rock, and Classical Music very successfully, and were finally able to boast this unusual yet inspired concoction on this, their only album, which was recorded during the latter stages of 1972. The record didn't actually see the light of day until 1974. This CD has been remastered from the original master tapes.

"Fuera de tiempo"

(2006) - VIAJERO INMÓVIL Records
CD - VIR

After many years of attempting to solidify his project, the talented flutist and composer Ricardo Luna was at long last able to form and consolidate his own band and record this heavily Classically-influenced Symphonic Rock debut album. The predominance of Ricardo's attractive flute during the whole recording, sets the pace and direction for all his songs. There is a certain stylistic proximity to Kollar Attila (from Solaris), and reminiscenses of Focus and Camel. This launch also includes two bonus tracks, which happen to be cover versions in the shape of a fitting musical tribute to the latter British Prog Rock group.

Band founded by one of the main icons and pioneers of Argentine Rock: Pajarito Zaguri (former member of Los Beatniks and La Barra de Chocolate), whom in the company of guitarist extraordinaire Nacho Smilari, bassist Willy Pedemonte and Carlos Calabro on drums, had an unfortunately short-lived career which resulted in this, their sole recorded effort; a marvellous concoction of Psychedelia, Hard Rock and Blues, often compared to Manal, La Pesada and Montes. A classic record, which finally enjoys its long delayed release, a launch that has been hungrily awaited by the legions of Argentine Rock collectionists the world over.

This album was recorded together with guitarist and bassist Daniel Homer, while Mirtha Defilpo took responsibility of almost all the lyrics and some vocal parts too. This is a record comprising very personal songs of a certain melancholic touch, and under the obvious influences of Brazilian sounds and rhythms.

Quaker is a new and young band originating from the City of La Plata (capital of the province of Buenos Aires, Argentina). The lads decided to form a group under the influence of their own personal musical tastes. Following the footsteps of bands such as Tryo & 3/4 de trio, their attempt is to evolve, through their own vision, the Progressive style inaugurated by King Crimson. This mission is further enhanced by combining such genre with elements of Fusion, thus attaining a sophisticated, instrumental progressive recipe, with nice touches of improvisation, which derive into a very personal sounding recipe.

CD - VIR

Unreleased album by one of the most prestigious composers and arrangers of Argentine music as a whole. Rodolfo produces a very personal brand of Fusion, via the combination of Jazz, Rock and elements culled from our territory's Popular music, through pleasant and memorable melodies, complex arrangements and constant (yet many times totally unexpected) rhythm changes, which altogether provide an amazing concoction similar to the Canterbury sound from the '70's (Hatfield & The North) or certain passages which easily remind us of Frank Zappa.

"El vuelo de los olvidados"

CD - VIR

This was the band's first album. It is now available for the very first time on CD format under its originally intended name which wasn't to be due to the bad old, bleak and sinister years of military dictatorship inspired censorship. A labour crammed with haunting melodies in close proximity to the emotionally drenched Progressive style of fellow-Argentine group Invisible and to the Argentine Folk-Rock scene's urban-influenced lyrics. A very special star guested on keyboards: Charly Garcia.

Short-lived Progressive Folk trio who recorded their sole album in the cherished company of Pedro Botti (piano) together with members of Aquelarre on several tracks. Exquisite, Pastoral melodies and excellent vocal arrangements (sung in Spanish) which toss our minds back to the glorious days of the early seventies Italian bands(acoustic guitars, piano and flute). Practically without any live concerts at all and with scarce promotional activity around the record's release, the band promptly decided to call it a day soon after.

He played absolutely everything himself on this Electronic Suite, so abundant in Symphonic moods and dreamy atmospheres. The artist also happened to write every single note on this record. Hence, we could really define it as a truly complete fruit and labour of soloist accomplishment. Highly recommended for lovers of Vangelis and Kitaro.
